Bush Picks “Symbolic” Site to Announce Hypocritical New Mid-East Peace Plan

By Debbie Schlussel
President Bush picked an “interesting” spot to deliver his January 13th “centerpiece speech” of his Mid-East “Peace” trip, this month: Abu Dhabi, one of the seven United Arab Emirates. The White House announced the choice, yesterday.
Reports say Bush picked Abu Dhabi because he believes that the UAE, with its high-tech buildings, fantastic developments, and other real estate, is different than the deserts of Saudi Arabia and the hovels of Karachi. In Dubai, the UAE has the world’s tallest skyscraper and is about to complete the world’s largest shopping mall. Because of these facades, Bush mistakenly believes this is an example of a desirable Islamic state to the rest of the others.
“Uptown” Abu Dhabi: Do Tall Buildings Mean Moderate Muslims Live In them? . . .

Bush’s Mid-East Facade:
Skyscrapers Are Not Condoms Against Muslim Extremism

But, in fact, Abu Dhabi, like the rest of the Emirates is a mirage. They may have high tech, but their Seventh Century beliefs are very low tech. The country continues in engaging in apartheid policies and extremist pursuits.
Today, no Israeli or any non-Muslim with an Israeli stamp in his/her passport can enter Abu Dhabi. The country participates in the anti-Israel boycott and won’t do business with companies doing business with Israel. Like the rest of the Emirates, it refuses to shore up banking laws that enabled the 9/11 terrorists to use the UAE as a conduit for both the finance and international documents needed to foment their attacks. The Emirates continue to use slave labor, including young Bangladeshi boys who are used as sex slaves and overworked at hard labor. Others–including fellow Muslims from the Philippines to Indonesia–are also slaves there and not allowed to leave, while they are not allowed to have any rights as citizens there.
Apparently Bush forgot the advice he gave but never took: “You’re either on our side or the terrorists’ side.” Emiratis regularly gave and continue to give donations to Islamic homicide bombers. It isn’t against the law there. It’s applauded. Remember those Palestinian terrorist telethons? They didn’t just air in and get donations from Saudi Arabia. The Emirates would never hear of being excluded from such “moderate,” “exemplary” activities.
Not long ago, the then-President of the Emirates sponsored anti-American and anti-Semitic speakers and published literature with similar messages: that the Holocaust never happened, that Israel and the CIA committed the 9/11 attacks, etc. So glad Bush is setting up this confederation of Arab gulf nations as an “example” to the rest of their Mein Kampf-reading fellow Muslims.
And none of the Emirates is a democracy, though Bush is pushing for his failed “free and democratic elections” there, too. The day that happens, Al-Qaeda will be victorious, as Bin Laden is the most popular figure throughout this “moderate” (so claims Bush) land.
Just because a country has marvels of building doesn’t mean it is an example of moderation. If that were the case, Egypt at the time of the pyramids would have been an example for moderation today. Just ask the Pharoahs. The fact is, the 9/11 hijackers had cellphones. They used computers. Bin Laden’s movement is extremely high-tech, using the internet and video better than we do. High tech does not mean low extremism, whether a Muslim lives in the caves of Afghanistan or the skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi.
That seven years into his administration and almost 6.5 years after the 9/11 attacks, Bush still does not get this and still shills for the failed twin towers of the “moderate” Emirates and “democracy” in the extremist Muslim Mid-East is a huge hint that he has no business pushing Israel into yet another failed . . . and fatal “peace” of paper.
That the President’s sleazy brother, Neil Bush, already received hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay-offs from the Emirates makes it extremely improper for Bush to now “thank” this country as a “moderate” entity, when it is anything but. There’s an unshakeable conflict of interest that doesn’t seem to interest this Commander-in-Chief one bit.
That Bush would deliver this speech on Mid-East “Peace” on the soil of a country that actively practices anti-Semitic apartheid against Jews and Israel is beyond disgusting. That he’d deliver it on the soil of a state that refused to cooperate in the initial months after the 9/11 attacks that murdered 3,000 Americans is even more sickening.
Bush simply hasn’t a clue. Technological or real estate sophistication does not equal peace or moderation of any kind. If a extremist’s toilet flushes better, it doesn’t make his outlook on the West any different. It simply helps dispose of their malodorous waste more quickly.
The UAE’s material sophistication and Bush’s lack of intellectual sophistication to know the difference continue to put them in a position of advantage and America and her only Mid-East ally at a dangerous disadvantage.
January 20, 2009 cannot come soon enough. Sadly, his replacement won’t be as “unsophisticated” as Bush is. She will use Bush’s softness toward terror enablers as a low starting point for her pandering toward the enemy.
Bush set the bar.

Like you, I am counting the days until January 20, 2009. The scary thing is that Bush’s blunders may be intentional, rather than a lack of intellectual sophistication. It’s reasonable to think that by going to the UAE, there will be something in the speech to put additional pressure on Israel, as if there hasn’t been enough already. Granted he doesn’t break any IQ records, but I don’t see how someone can be this clueless by accident. BTW, when is the campaign for democracy going to get to Russia and China?

“Bush simply hasn’t a clue”
Oh b’met Debbie! Bush doesn’t act alone, he has advisers and everything is going to plan. The plan is to keep Bush 41’s promise to the Arabs who joined his “coalition”, and “take care of the Israelis”. The Arabs have received billions in US training and weapons in preparation for the Final Solution to the Arab Israeli Conflict. (Why else would they require such sophisticated training and weaponry? Are they afraid of a Norwegian attack?)
My country, Israel, will suffer huge losses and be forced to use unconventional weapons against the US backed Arab forces……and American Jews will suffer the backlash when oil supplies are disrupted.
Only a handful of my family in Europe survived the second world war. It is happening all over again.
You are a very brave woman Debbie.

Debbie, you have made this statement before: “Today, no Israeli or any non-Muslim with an Israeli stamp in his/her passport can enter Abu Dhabi.” Can you please provide proof?
Why do I ask? Because, for example, Cunard holds cruises that stop in Abu Dhabi. Are you saying that if I went on one of these cruises, I wouldn’t be allowed off the ship in the port?
As much as I loathe Islam, I find this very hard to believe. Surely you can cite to an example of this in the press. Please do.
[RP: THIS ISN'T A SECRET. IT'S WELL KNOWN THAT THIS IS THE OFFICIAL POLICY OF DUBAI, ABU DHABI, THE REST OF THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, AND MOST ARAB COUNTRIES. IT'S ACTUALLY ON SOME OF THE WEBSITES OF THESE COUNTRIES AND THEIR EMBASSY WEBSITES. AND THEY'LL TELL YOU THAT IT'S THEIR POLICY WHEN ASKED ABOUT IT. THEY SIMPLY DO NOT ALLOW ISRAELI PASSPORTS OR PASSPORTS WITH ISRAELI STAMPS AND THE PEOPLE HOLDING THOSE PASSPORTS INTO THE COUNTRY (UNLESS THE PASSPORT HOLDERS ARE MUSLIM). GOOGLE IT, AND YOU'LL SEE IT'S A FACT OF LIFE THERE, THOUGH THEY WON'T OPENLY ADMIT THAT THEY LET THE MUSLIMS WITH ISRAELI PASSPORTS IN, BUT THEY DO. DS]

All politicians seem to gravitate towards Dubai in their Golden Years. The pay is good. Bush is just setting up his retirement income there.
